Students are NOT placed into Co-op work terms.
Instead, students are provided the tools and support to pursue work-experience opportunities available to them. Through the job search, application and interview, students learn life long skills to aid their future career journey.
Students should apply to the co-op program after they have completed 30 units towards their BComm and before they have completed 90 units (typically in their 2nd year of the BComm program). To note: students can not start their first work term before they have completed 54 units towards their BComm. Carefully degree planning with a Program Specialist is highly recommended, in order to complete the academic courses required before a work term begins.
Students must complete a minimum of two co-op work terms and can do a maximum of four.
